SNL meets Glee meets a magic show! — Esther’s Follies

Esther’s Follies

525 E. Sixth Street
Austin, TX
Comedy club

This kitschy comedy club has been a downtown staple since 1977, and for a good reason. The ever-changing shows are full of musical-comedy theater, with Vaudville entertainment, satire, magic tricks, improv comedy, and a large window to Sixth Street, whose unique passerbys provide additional humor to the audience. Shannon Sedwick, also known as “the mama of the follies,” is known for her hilarious Patsy Cline routine. If you need some laughs, this is the place to go. (courtesy of
